Bernard Jenkin – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the HM Treasury

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Bernard Jenkin on 2015-10-22.

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will make an assessment of the average net benefit per household of the UK’s membership of the EU.

Mr David Gauke

As the Chancellor of the Exchequer has noted, the best outcome for the UK economy is that we achieve major economic reform of the EU. The Prime Minister is focused on success: he believes he can and will succeed in reforming and renegotiating our relationship with the EU, and campaigning to keep the UK in the EU on that basis.

The Confederation of British Industry and British Chambers of Commerce have both come out to say they support the reform agenda the Prime Minister is seeking to deliver.
